Whenever a business invests money into upgrading their product, it is a testament to not only their personal success, but the success of the local tourism community as a whole. There are a number of businesses in Adams County which are renovating their buildings, meeting spaces and storefronts, including Adams County Winery.
The current tasting room at the home winery in Orrtanna has been completely redone to include new counters with repurposed barn wood counter tops, floors and artwork- namely a new sign where the mural used to be. The merchandising space has also been recreated allowing for an enhanced tasting room experience while retaining the rustic charm of the historic barn.
“We have recently updated our brand to reflect a more fun, bright and approachable wine,” says Public Relations Director Melissa Brown. “And now we have completed aligning our tasting room with that brand as well.”
This latest renovation is just one in a series owners Katherine Bigler and John Kramb have done since purchasing the winery in 1998. In the almost 20 years the winery has been under their ownership, the tasting room and an additional event venue were added onto the barn, landscaping features such as the stone pavilion and garden terrace were constructed and a wood-fired pizza oven was built to create the Terrace Bistro among many other visual and practical renovations.
“It’s always been our priority [to enhance the customers’ experience],” said Katherine. “Times have certainly changed, but we will never change our priorities.”
